What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally-occurring, fibrous silicate mineral that is highly resistant to heat, electricity and chemical corrosion and can be woven into fabrics. Pure asbestos acts effectively as an insulator, and it can also be mixed into cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to give them strength. It is used in brake linings and in fire-resistant and insulating materials and only a few decades ago was a regular option for insulation, building and construction in Melbourne.
Why Do I Need To Remove Asbestos?
Over time, the health effects of asbestos have reared and it is now publicly known as a highly toxic substance that is no longer in commercial use in Melbourne.
What makes asbestos dangerous to people is its natural qualities. Asbestos fibers are so small, they cannot be seen, smelled or tasted and because asbestos exposure doesn’t cause any immediate symptoms, it is very easy for a person to inhale or swallow asbestos dust without realizing it.
Once asbestos fibers are in the body, because they are so microscopic, they never dissolve, and the body has extreme difficulty expelling them. Over years, trapped asbestos fibers can cause inflammation, scarring and eventually genetic damage to the body’s cells. A number of diseases and conditions of the lung, including cancers have been attributed to damage by asbestos.
Even though it’s no longer in use, many buildings in Melbourne still contain asbestos, so if you have noticed the signs or are under any suspicion at all, be sure to contact professionals for a consultation so they can inspect and identify the problem.
